I like to comment in build logs (especially those from non-famous members) when people update to encourage them. tongue.gif

But yes a lot of people do silently follow.

Nah I wasn't completely serious with that comment. Like I said considering my thread has over 8,000 views I am more than happy with the interest it has received. It was my little way of thanking warpprism for his continued replies. Even though most don't post I can tell they watching thumb.gif

AND WHAT YOU TALKING ABOUT I'M NOT A FAMOUS BUILDER!?!?!?!?!?!?!? I resemble that statement biggrin.gif

Seriously though thank you all for following this build this far. I was a little bummed out when I had to switch cases. I really liked that Cooler Master Elite 130. It made me think of how I as going to get something to work and plan ahead for what I had in mind. In the end even though it would have worked it was just too cramped inside. When it would come to taking pictures to really show things off once it was all done I had no good angles and it was just disappointing. Based on a review I watched tonight of the Corsair 250D I am glad I did not go with that case. I do however wish Bitfenix had released the Colossus cases in whiite. They are basically the same internals with a different shell. I am however very please with what I have been able to accomplish with the Prodigy. I am not 100% happy with the way my 24pin cable looks but I have few options on fixing it. The PSU is just slightly too long to fit with all the cables I have plugged in and they just dont flow into the connector the way I would like.

Monday FrozenCPU should have my pump and I hope to get it back by the end of the week. Get this baby filled this weekend and FINALLY have this system finished. It has been a long time coming and I'm anxious to get it done. Especially now that I can use it to replace my main rig as my gaming machine and turn the 800D into my media server.

This morning I woke up to a nice little surprise in my PM inbox

From SFF-Tek

Hello Stuntfly02,

I just wanted to inform you that we featured your case mod ''Little Italy'' on our website. You can see it here: http://www.sff-tek.com/little-italy-by-stuntfly02/

Very nice build sir, i love it! thumb.gif

Have a nice day and happy modding!

I really like your build. The Italian color-sceme is very nice. I wanted to make one recommendation though: I noticed you were using the pastel white coolant, and wanted to recommend a different brand that has a MUCH whiter white. Your coolant is like "skim milk" white, this stuff is the "whole milk" white tongue.gif Ice Dragon coolant. Maybe something as nit-picky as that isn't something you care about, but take a look, and seach it here on this website. There are a few builds on here that use it and it's magnificent.

While I do agree at least with the lighting on it looks more skim milk thin. It is something I am more than happy to live with and one neat thing is that with the lighting where it is when I change the color of the lights to red or green it tints the coolant that color as well smile.gif. Not sure I would get the same effect with the Ice Dragon.

I saw what you said, Stuntfly. Just putting it out there. Thanks for the nod, anyway. thumb.gif

Very sorry for insulting you. wink.gif Although I never said you weren't famous though, did I... tongue.gif

And congrats on getting featured on that site!

I'm not mad or upset in any way. I know I'm not a famous builder and for me to have gotten as much attention as I have with this build is more than I ever expected.

One thing I've been saying in some people's build logs is that it's really more for yourself. It's just something that you can look back on and show to others. My Prodigy buildlog has 14K views and has way less comments than yours, but like you, I'm happy just having people see my build, especially since many are likely to be non-OCN members and cannot comment anyhow.

Great work on the GPU waterblock! I've been waiting for someone to do what you did and it does look awesome. It's something I may try out on my next GPU upgrade if there isn't a plexi version available.
